Checking Out All The Houses
Checking to see if the bird houses are empty on the raccoon trail today. Most of the birds have already used the houses this year and moved on.
Beautiful Day For a Walk
It is a beautiful day for a walk, the temps are in the mid-80's and the shaded portions of the trails are welcomed.
Bridge Over Creek
Bridge that runs over a small section of the creek. Sometime the section on the other side of the bridge heading toward the squirrel trail is muddy. Once you get past the 4- 5 foot section there isn't usually any additional muddy spots.

The Cattails Are Tall
In mid-summer the cattails are pretty tall in this section of the raccoon trail. In the early spring there are numerous Canada Geese that raise their little ones along the swamp areas.
